Dometic CYA Owner's Manual...
George, aka Ganttimes has it right. "CYA. Is what it is all about."
I did learn that the refrigerator will still operate at 9.6 volts DC.
If you read the instructions for the Dometic, there are many WARNINGS. I cannot blame them to place the owner(s) responsible for anything that could go wrong. But all of these warnings are intended for the least informed individual owning an expensive trailer with a refrigerator. Even kids toys have more warnings attached letting the least informed to know that a metal baseball bat can be dangerous when in the hands of an adult, or younger users...
If you read between the lines on the warnings, it is obvious that what could be possible, yet improbable, be included to CYA. ALL newbie's should read the Owner's Manuals included with their trailer. Mostly for their proper operation, but also to understand any caveats of ownership. I take all of this seriously, but also must apply some common sense to these dire warnings.
I received, yesterday, a Safety Recall for potential floor mat interference with accelerator pedal on our 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser. In Spanish and English. CYA. The Toyota dealer will also inspect the carpet, underneath the "locked in floor mats". If they need a cleaning, they will clean them, as well, at no charge. I understand why the notice had to be sent. Some owners... will be deeply disturbed and immediately take their vehicle in for corrective repairs. I have it under control.
